    After starting at Miami in parts of his first two seasons, Veliz transitioned to the bullpen this spring, where he’s posted the highest strikeout rate of his career. Through 28 games and 34 innings on the mound, Veliz fanned 62 batters (14.6 per nine) and walked 21 (4.9 per nine) with a 2.35 ERA. Veliz has a quick arm and touches 94-95 at his best, but sits in the low-90s with a slider that could be an above-average offering and a split-change. Veliz has the size—he’s listed at 6-foot-2, 200-pounds—to start, but after succeeding in a reliever role last summer in the Cape Cod League and seeing his stuff tick up in the bullpen this spring, he could be better suited for a reliever role in pro ball. Veliz was draft-eligible last spring, but missed most of the second half of the season with an arm injury.
